1 min read

The Centre has invoked Section 6(5) of the NIA Act to transfer the Bardhaman blast case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), a day after the West Bengal police invoked the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against the four arrested accused.

This provision of the NIA Act empowers the Centre to suo motu transfer the cases involving laws specified in the Offences Schedule of the Act.
